Description

The new AR Blue Clean BC111HS electric pressure washer is the most powerful and portable option available with 1600 psi and 1.7 GPM available for any outdoor cleaning job done right.

Zoom on the AR Blue Clean BC111HS

In a nutshell, the AR Blue Clean BC111HS is a light duty pressure washer that allows:

  • intense cleaning of hard, unpainted surfaces
  • use of detergent and cleaning solutions

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics and design, its main features and all the additional features it has to offer.

Power

The AR Blue Clean BC111HS in use

The AR Blue Clean BC111HS

The AR Blue Clean BC111HS's aluminum axial (wobble plate) pump, powered by a 12.5 amp universal motor, can provide a pressure of up to 1600 PSI (approximately 27 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 1.7 GPM (values claimed by the manufacturer). These are the maximum values that the washer can reach only under specific conditions. Under typical load, working pressure is 1160 PSI and rated flow is 1.2 GPM. The AR Blue Clean BC111HS thus has a cleaning power of 1392 Cleaning Units.

Since it is an electric pressure washer, the motor of the BC111HS is started simply by an ON/OFF switch. The unit is ready-to-use with peace of mind, thanks to the included 35 ft GFCI cord.

Design & Handling

With its portable design and approximate dimensions of D13 x W12 x H24 in, the AR Blue Clean BC111HS makes mobility one of its core strengths. The handle adds to the BC111HS convenience of transport.

Since the unit weighs only 14.6 lbs, it is very easily carried around. Its plastic frame certainly plays a key role in this light weight. This light weight compensates for the fact that the BC111HS doesn't have any wheels, as it's not something necessary.

Main Features

The AR Blue Clean BC111HS

Along with the AR Blue Clean BC111HS itself, the package also includes a spray gun, a wand, a pressure hose, a nozzle tip and a detergent addition feature, which are discussed in further detail below.

  • Soap addition: Detergent is added to the water at the exit, by attaching the included foam cannon to the end of the gun. The foam cannon features a dial to allow you to manually choose the detergent dilution ratio.
  • Pressure hose: The included 20 ft high-pressure hose can be neatly stored on the unit when idle thanks to a set of easy-to-use straps.
  • Spray gun and wand: Both the classic ergonomic spray gun and its wand may be conveniently stored in a side hook.
  • Nozzle: the following nozzle is included.

Other Features

The specs of the AR Blue Clean BC111HS

The AR Blue Clean BC111HS

  • Total Stop System (TSS): This feature automatically shuts off the pressure washer when the trigger is not engaged, to prolong the pump's lifespan.
  • Onboard storage: Stay prepared for any job with AR Blue Clean BC111HS's handy storage area, which allows you to neatly store any nozzles and accessories which you may need for the job.
  • Safety: Safety of operation is enhanced by a trigger lock mechanism (which prevents accidental operation).
  • Accessories: On top of an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) and the usual documentation to get you swiftly started, the AR Blue Clean BC111HS also comes with pressure hose, nozzle cleaner, foam cannon (to add cleaning solutions to the water), wand, spray gun and power cord.

Product Video

The AR Blue Clean BC111HS's performance versus other pressure washers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how the key specs of the AR Blue Clean BC111HS compare to similarly priced pressure washers.

  • The AR Blue Clean BC111HS and its 1600 PSI, ranks amongst electric pressure washers with a comparably low pressure output, considering the units that cost between $120 and $150. If your priority is the highest possible power of the water stream, in this price range, we suggest checking out the Westinghouse ePX3500, which reaches up to 2500 PSI.
  • Considering the above-mentioned price range, this washer's maximum water flow of 1.7 GPM (gallons per minute) is higher than the average. If maximum rinsing efficiency is your top priority, one of the devices with the highest water flow in the same price range is the Westinghouse ePX3500, with a GPM of 1.76.
  • With 1392 Cleaning Units, the BC111HS is on the low end when compared to other similarly priced electric devices. If the highest overall cleaning power is your top priority, the Pulsar PWE2001V, which can reach up to 3200 Cleaning Units, is one of the most efficient of the devices in the current price range.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other electric washers between 900 and 1600 Cleaning Units, the AR Blue Clean BC111HS is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its cleaning power range, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.

The bottom line

STRENGTHS:
  • Portable
  • Onboard storage
  • High GPM for the price
WEAKNESSES:
  • On the expensive side
  • Only 1 nozzle included
  • Low PSI for the price
  • Low CU for the price
